Ah, Chicago

Glad to say that, after a spate of horrible dreams, I had a nice one last night. I can't remember what it was about, but I know I woke up and said sleepily, "thas better" and went back to sleep. It had something to do with sunshine.

In other news, I am going to a conference and giving a presentation; the rest of the time will be spent in museums and the Chicago LUSH store, and in my hotel room grading essays. I have a theory that I might be able to do a massively better job of this in a hotel room than I am currently doing at home and office. I even intend to eat at the hotel restaurant or get "carry-up" all three nights, and treat this like a semi-seclusion, AND, I plan to do some good old fashioned writing of a poem whilst there. 'twill rock.

I wish I could wrangle a way to meet you in Chicago. Normally this wouldn't be a challenge, but for obvious recent work and life reasons, I'm not sure I can do it. What days will you be there? You can email me if you don't want to blog the details.

Have fun, Abs, and good luck.
Nice seeing you for all of two seconds in BG the other day--you look beautiful.

The Chicago Lush store beckons to me as well. What shall I buy? Perhaps some Sonic Death Monkey body wash? Or some Alkamar soap? Mmmmmmm...

So excited to actually smell things in person again instead of guessing how they smell from the website...
